The reason that images are receiving such a renewed interest by presenters, educators and executives around the world is that we now have concrete evidence that words that are displayed as text on slides cannot be processed by the human brain at the same time as words spoken by a presenter with equal efficacy. People either pay more attention to the slide’s written text, or more attention to the presenter’s words. The major problem is that usually a presenter’s spoken words are compromised by the audience reading the slides as he or she attempts to engage them verbally.
Instead of forcing your audience to attempt to process two conflicting streams of language-based information at the same time, simply keep the amount of words on each slide to a bare minimum. Here at Doodleslide, we recommend no more than TEN words per slide. No more! If you have any more than ten, you can place them either in the notes section of PowerPoint for your reference, give audience members a hand-out that they can refer to later, or email the audience any pertinent information following the presentation.
Doodleslide’s clipart is divided into 28 discrete categories containing almost every type of image that a presenter could need. Given that Doodleslide is designed by educators, it is especially useful for those people who are professional educators, such as corporate trainers, academics, professors, coaches, teachers and mentors. However Doodleslide is also extremely useful for students and anyone else who wishes to be as influential as possible by using appealing, quirky and fun pictures in their slides to keep listeners actively engaged, with their reticular activating system buzzing!
When inserting the Doodleslide clipart images, we recommend that you make sure that you keep the images as large as possible on the slide. Also, avoid clogging up a slide with too many pictures. They say that a picture tells a thousand words – and it does! Use the image as a starting point for the conversation or dialogue that you want to have with your presentation audience. And finally, clip art images should not just used to ‘decorate’ your presentation or fill and awkward or empty-appearing spaces. This is a cardinal sin of presenting. Your pictures must have a narrative or informational purpose, else they are robbing the attention of your listeners.
